It looks like Sharna Burgess and Brian Austin Green’s relationship is heating up!
The stunning couple attended Cassie Scerbo’s 80s-themed birthday party (benefiting Boo2Bullying) in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
The Dancing with the stars The pro, who looked gorgeous in a light blue top and matching pleated pants, opened up to ET’s Katie Krause about why this event was particularly meaningful to the couple.
“He is passionate about doing good in the world and leaving his mark … and that’s really one of the ways we connect so much, it’s [asking] “What do we want to do in the world?” Burgess shared. “What a beautiful way to have our first event together, to support a cause that is advancing in the eradication of bullying.”
“Because he also has three beautiful boys who are in school, and a 19-year-old young man, and anyone who has children would understand, you would fight so that your children do not have to suffer bullying,” he added.
This is the first time Burgess, 35, and Green, 47, have attended a high-profile event together.
The two became Instagram officials in January, just weeks after photographers caught them packing the PDA in Hawaii.
According to Burgess, she has had to find a balance between “shouting from the top of the mountain” and keeping things private when it comes to talking about her romance.
“That anonymity, that little secret that was only ours, we kept it for as long as we could,” he said beaming.
“We take time out and we really get to know each other for who we are on the inside,” Burgess said of their burgeoning relationship. “And we really built something beautiful.”
The couple have been dating for six months, and Burgess said both she and Green are in awe of how quickly time has passed.
“It feels like yesterday when we said, ‘How has it been only four weeks?’ And now it’s like, ‘How’s it been six months ?!’ she shared, “It’s gone so, so fast.”
Part of the reason the couple took their time building their relationship stems from the quarantine dating, which presented a completely different experience for both of them.
“It was a different way of dating someone. We really took our time. We went on four or five dates before we even kissed,” she said. “It was really about getting to know the human being, because that’s where we both are in our lives. I’m not dating for fun, I’m serious. I want to get to know you inside.”
Burgess added that due to the confinements, “there are fewer outside distractions. I’m not traveling that much … it gave us time to get to know each other.”
With productions back in full swing and season 30 of Dancing with the stars On the horizon, Burgess reflected on how Green had almost been cast as his dance partner for the show’s final season, but withdrew. The dancer also admitted that she is now unsure if she would really want him to join the show as her partner.
“It’s such a different bubble to work with,” he said. “I love what we have and Dancing with the stars it is a completely different experience. It could put us in a too public space where people say, ‘Oh! They’re fighting ‘or …’ Oh, no chemistry. ‘ People do that enough when you no dating your dance partner, so it’s like, do we want those eyes on us? “
A source told ET last month that Green had already introduced Burgess to the three children he shares with his estranged wife, Megan Fox: 8-year-old Noah, 6-year-old Bodhi and 4-year-old Journey.
“Brian sees a lot of potential with Sharna and is curious to see how things turn out,” the source said at the time. “Sharna has met Brian’s kids and they think she’s super nice and they get along really well with her.”
“Brian loves how upbeat and positive Sharna is and how super motivated and always smiling and laughing,” added the source. “He admires that she goes out of her way to enjoy life and lead a successful professional life.”
This past April, while speaking to ET through Zoom, Burgess admitted that one thing that he had been “really deprived of” over the past few years was his love life.
“I used to share everything, until I was 30 and my last long-term relationship ended,” he said. “Because it’s difficult, even in your own circle of family and friends. You want to have your own opinion, not the opinion of others. You don’t want to be too influenced by what other people think about the decisions or choices you make. doing. And that’s something I’ve kept pretty private for a while. “
“I’m willing to talk about growing up, the environment, the mommy and daddy issues we all have, acne, all the things we go through,” she continued. “But dating is just one of the things that I find really difficult to share.”
Burgess added, however, that once he knows “it’s real,” he won’t be able to “shut up.” “It’s just that, like, the process of finding him, you know?” She explained. Hear more in the video below:
